New Method to Extend the Lifetime of Implanted Devices

Researchers from Harvard University have developed a biochemical mechanism to extend the time that an implanted medical device can remain functional and not trigger an immune response. In a study published in Nature Communications, the authors engineered an enzyme to make it extremely efficient in replacing the biofilm that coats the devices and prevents unwanted physiological reactions. Medical […]
